2017 West Orange Chess Club Championship

2017 West Orange Chess Club Championship!

Here are the dates for this event:
3/21/2017 Round 1 of West Orange CC Championship
3/28/2017 Round 2 of West Orange CC Championship
4/11/2017 Round 3 of West Orange CC Championship
4/18/2017 Round 4 of West Orange CC Championship
4/25/2017 Round 5 (Final) of West Orange CC Championship
Time control: G/100-5 second delay (To be set in accordance with current USCF rules).
Entry fee: $25.00 for official club members, $35.00 for new members (includes $10.00 WOCC regular adult membership dues). All West Orange residents, all those under 18 and over 65 pay $5.00 yearly dues.
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT:  USCF membership must be valid through to the end of the tournament: this holds true for any event sponsored by this or any other organization in the USA which holds USCF rated tournaments.
Limit ONE 1/2 point bye that can be taken in any round. Such a request must be announced before the posting of the Round 3 pairings.
Although the tournament committee does preliminary pairings soon after each round, these are subject to change up to 7:45 PM of the night of the round. This is to accommodate an individual who may be ill or who may have transportation issues so that we can redo pairings to maximize having people play and to minimize forfeitures. A player who is unable to contact us before 7:45 PM will be given a forfeit for that round. 0 point byes will be given if deemed appropriate by the committee for the smooth governance of the tournament.
The tournament committee (John Hagerty and Doran Race) reserves the right to make changes to the above rules as they deem appropriate and are allowed for under USCF rules. Once pairings are posted on the night of a round, there will be no changes. As usual, "make up" games at another venue or on Garden State Chess League nights (for this tournament 4-4-17) may be arranged by mutual consent along with the permission of the tournament committee. Note: A player cannot be forced to play such a match.  They can choose to take a forfeit win instead.
Late entrants will be accepted up to the pairing of Round 2. However, under this option, you would be forced to accept your allotted 1/2 point bye for the Round 1 that you did not play in.
This tournament will use the accelerated pairing method to minimize extreme early round rating discrepancies and to maximize the competition for club champion. In the event that two or more players are tied for first at the end of the tournament, a playoff tournament (at no extra cost) will be held (instead of using tie break systems as we have in the past) to determine the club champion. If such an event needs to be scheduled, a separate new tournament for the players not in the playoff (and perhaps new joiners to the club) will be held.
Advance entries are welcomed by contacting Club President and TD John Hagerty either by phone, 973-736-3433 from 10 am to 10 pm or by email, buickchess@gmail.com .  On site registration begins at approximately 7:00 and ends at 7:45 on Tuesday March 21, 2017. 
This information is subject to change
The West Orange Chess Club is closed on Tuesday March 14, 2017 due to an impending snowstorm.  The tournament schedule towards the beginning of this post has been edited to reflect the changes necessitated by the closing of the club on 3-14.
